We won! A Life in Frocks grabs an award
Congratulations to Zoe Sadokierski and Murdoch Books for giving me the most well-designed non-fiction book in Australia for 2010, as voted by the Australian Publishers’ Association this week, and thank you to Better Read than Dead bookstore for sponsoring the award.
Zoe received the accolade last Thursday night at the annual Book Design Awards. Hurrah for Zoe, and a big thank you to publisher Colette Vella for championing the final design, which was described by the panel of judges as “a very clever package which reveals itself, quite literally… plays with composition in a fresh way, and with a surprisingly minimal use of colour. This is a book for the female genre which is not overly girly, while still retaining femininitely.” Go Frocks.
